These eggshell paintings are the work of visual artist Anca Gray, an Etsy user who creates gorgeous canvases with the help of an unlikely medium. Resembling over-sized puzzles, each of her masterpieces are texture-enriched and are made of thousands of eggshell fragments.

Based in Chicago, Anca is inspired by themes of vulnerability and aims to depict this concept through the fragility of her material. Her eggshell paintings are finished with a layer of white acrylic paint and are striking in an understated way.

In addition to her all-white masterpieces, Anca also experiments with aged and recycled book, magazines and other objects that she incorporates into her striking and thought-provoking works. Her pieces can be purchased from the $45 to $12 000 range.
